This social enterprise creates opportunity for the homeless or addicted transitioning out of recovery programs by giving them an opportunity to help craft projects created with reclaimed goods. According to their website
, “We understand to be a craftsman is a calling—a pursuit and a need to build, so we put our energy into providing opportunity—more importantly HOPE for the hopeless craftsmen.” So far, they’ve logged over 66,500 hours of work, 1,200 tables for families, and used over 240,000 pounds of reclaimed waste—that otherwise would have ended up in a landfill.
(P.S. They’re releasing bed swings in June.)
